On Tuesday 29th November Guardian Angel Carers Founder and CEO, Christina Handasyde Dick attended her investiture at Windsor Castle to collect an MBE presented by King Charles III.
Christina was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s birthday honours list 2022 for Services to Home Care and Charity, particularly during Covid-19. Christina’s pro-active leadership and foresight saw her turn immense care challenges under Covid-19 conditions into exceptional solutions. She and her team worked relentlessly throughout the pandemic to ensure the safety of their clients and colleagues.
“I am humbled to receive this honour,” Christina said. “A huge amount of gratitude is owed to all those that have worked with us, and alongside us; thank you. Covid-19 presented enormous challenges to the care sector, but with a proactive approach we managed to ensure that the risk to our clients and CareAngels was kept to a minimum. I am hugely grateful for this recognition, not for me, but for our team, our industry, and all care workers that day in, day out are helping people to live more safely in the comfort of their own home.”
